Road-Trip-Mockumentary with The Experimental Tropic Blues Band. The ones that stink of dirty basements, full of brain damaged freaks; the ones with endless road trips, clumsy friendships and the difficulties of living together. All of them sprinkled with the ‘Baby Bamboo’, that magical pipe which brings the promise of psychedelic journeys.
Jérôme Vandewattyne is a Belgian director born in 1989. As a true cinema and music fanatic, he creates the music band VHS FROM SPACE and begins studying Film-Making at IAD. One year later, he leaves the school for the ISFSC, taking an Audiovisual and Advertising option for which he directed a short film as his final work, SHE’S A SLUT, shown at the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFFF). The following year, he directed the stroboscopic SLUTTERBALL, a second self-produced short film. He went on to direct two complete seasons for the teenage web series “What The Fake ?! RTBF “. Now, at 25 years old, after working alongside La Film Fabrique on the vjing of the show “The Belgians”, he climbs aboard The Experimental Tropic Blues Band’s van to follow them on tour for more than two years. This experience will give birth to his first feature, SPIT’N’SPLIT.
